On a monthly basis, airlines internally publish their reliability reports. Engineering teams use these monthly reliability reports to discuss potential detailed technical investigations aimed at increasing a certain aspect of overall reliability. Creation of these reports is typically done by the reliability engineer or reliability engineering team and can involve significant manual work prior to being published. How can Heads of Engineering ensure that time and attention of the reliability team is focused on technical investigations rather than report data collection and report creation?
In order to monitor the effectiveness of the airlines approved maintenance program any commercial airline is obligated to have a reliability monitoring process in place. The reliability monitoring process should be aimed at identifying potential areas on the aircraft that might require additional modifications or alternations to the maintenance requirements it is subjected to. The scope of such a reliability monitoring process is defined in various industry standards, with the most prominent one being the ATA SPEC2000 Chapter 11 standard. This standard defines the various areas to monitor as part of a reliability monitoring process and include items such as Aircraft Utilization, Technical Dispatch Reliability, Component Removals & Installations and Aircraft System Defects monitoring.
To adhere to the reliability monitoring process, airlines typically produce monthly reliability statistics based on the data monitored as per the SPEC2000 Chapter 11 standard. These statistics are published in the Airline’s monthly reliability report and typically form the base of a repetitive meeting with all required stakeholders in order to identify if any further technical investigations need to be started based on the report produced.
Within Avilytics, the reliability report module allows to directly capture all required reliability graphs, statistics and data as required for a reliability report according SPEC2000 Chapter 11 standards.

Thru a quick link the reliability report can directly be printed and distributed to the applicable audience. Additionally, a customization service will ensure that the lay-out and look & feel of the reliability report is adhering to the airline branding standards and guidelines for documentation.
How can I create an instant available reliability report?
Every minute that is spend on creation of the fleet reliability report is a minute less spend on the actual technical investigations in order to further improve reliability and fleet availability. Additionally, time used to produce monthly reliability reports is not just consumed by the creation of the visual graphs but mainly consumed by manual data gathering, data cleansing, data enrichments and even potential data manipulations.
Tip: Using a reliability analytics software will allow to dynamically analyse reliability data instead of static analysis by a printed report.
A static report is a good starting point, however, will likely trigger further detailed questions than requiring new analysis to be executed prior to be able to answer the questions raised. When using a dynamic reliability analytics software, engineers will have the opportunity to deep dive and drill down themselves during their investigations without being dependant on the time and availability of the reliability engineer or reliability engineering team.
